ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships will be given on a rolling basis. Apply early. Scholarships cover the cost of registration only. While funds are not available to help with transportation or housing, low-cost housing options are posted on the Where To Stay page of our website.

Scholarships will be given based on economic need. Split This Rock is committed to assembling a diverse group of participants at our poetry festivals. Therefore, priority will be given to youth and seniors, poets and activists of color, poets and activists with disabilities, LGBT poets and activists, undocumented poets and activists, and poets and activists from other marginalized groups.
